Epilepsy Awareness


This course aims to raise awareness and provide knowledge about epilepsy, a neurological condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It covers the causes, symptoms, and treatments for epilepsy, as well as how to recognise and respond to seizures. By the end of the course, learners will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to support individuals with epilepsy and provide a safe and inclusive environment. 

Learning objectives
  • Define epilepsy and understand its causes and symptoms 
  • Identify different types of epilepsy and appropriate management techniques 
  • Support individuals with epilepsy in the workplace and in the community 
  • Create an inclusive environment that promotes the safety and wellbeing of individuals with epilepsy. 
Delivery method 

Can be delivered face to face, online or blended either in person or virtually e.g.  Teams/Zoom. Learners will have access to our learning platform where they can refer to the materials, watch extra resources such as videos and interactive activities and access links to organisations, for those that want to take their learning further. 

A full day is recommended for staff with little or no previous experience. For those with prior knowledge, a half day is recommended as a condensed session with post course materials. 

Workshops combine presentation slides, interactive exercises, individual reflection and group discussion.
